I’d been in the Metro Arena once, back before the hockey team left town, me and Bernie working on a case involving some crazed fan. Hockey: the strangest game I’ve ever seen, made no sense, plus all the fans turned out to be crazed and we maybe didn’t even end up finding the right one and clearing the case, which hardly ever happens. Also, I got to go on the ice, supposedly a treat. Ice! Once was enough, let me tell you. Plus the players smelled very bad and the puck was none too tasty.

“You don’t know anything about hockey,” Spence says.

“I think the term is derived from the Dutch for hook,” says Admin.

“I’m talking about the game,” Spence says. “Of which you know nothing, and yet you’ve bet a bottle of Highland Park on the Bruins.”

“Right.”

“With your brother Anthony, who lives in Vancouver and knows hockey backwards.”

“Correct.”

Knowing things backwards – that comes up from time to time with humans, may even be in The Dog Who Knew Too Much. As for hockey, I once got hold of a puck. That turned out to be a bit of a challenge. And was I at a game once? Is that in Thereby Hangs A Tail? So much happens in life! Wouldn’t have it any other way.

From Admin: There’s a rumor that someone in the comments section remembered the hockey scene and wants a treat. The vote here was 3-1 in favor, and therefore that someone is asked to remind us about the treat when pub date for book 3 nears.
